Naperville Youth Basketball

Naperville Youth Basketball introduces participants to the fundamentals of basketball through practices and weekend games. The league emphasizes proper technique, knowledge of the rules, team strategy, participation and fun! Enrollment is limited so please register early.


Fall and Winter Naperville Youth Basketball online only registration begins Tuesday, September 13 at noon for residents and Thursday, September 15 at noon for nonresidents.


Each player must wear the league uniform which is a blue and white reversible jersey. Any player who does not have a blue and white reversible jersey or who needs to replace theirs will need to purchase one for an additional fee; jerseys can be purchased at the Fort Hill Activity Center. School sites, which will be used for practices, are to be determined by the Park District. Because not every school is available for practices, some teams may practice at a neighboring school rather than the school attended by team members. A weekly practice will be scheduled for each team but is not always guaranteed and is dependent on facility availability.

There are two seasons for NYB - Fall (October-December) and Winter (January-March)

Children in basketball team uniforms and their parents, grandparents and siblings are streaming in and out of the building at the start and finish of each game.  Coaches confer with their assistants and gather their teams, the scoreboards light up and the buzzers sound.
